Excavatio. International Review for Multidisciplinary Approaches and Comparative Studies Related to Emile Zola and Naturalism Around the World is the official publication of the Association internationale Zola et Naturalisme (AIZEN).
Excavatio is a scholarly-refereed open access journal published twice a year. Open to professors, doctoral candidates, and independent scholars with an earned doctorate, it is dedicated to the dissemination of scholarly essays on literature, comparative and cultural studies, art and film studies related to Emile Zola and naturalism, naturalist writers, artists, or filmmakers, and the influence or reception of such works. It also serves as a forum for research in progress.
As the voice of AIZEN, Excavatio aims at the rapid diffusion of research through the publication of the best recast papers presented at the association’s conferences. Article submitted for consideration must be in full length and are subject to peer review. Presentation of a paper at an AIZEN conference does not guarantee publication in Excavatio.
